How do you put a corbel on a wall?
Have a small level handy to make sure the corbel is level before you press it into place. Once level, press the corbel into place on the wall where you want it to be located. Once pressed into place, pull corbel away from the wall — the cleat will stay. If you’re installing over a stud, secure with screws.
How big of a piece of wood do you need to make a corbel?
For a 12 inch piece of wood, make your pattern no wider than 11 inches. The length of the corbel is up to you. My corbel was about 15 inches in length. Start with the interior piece. Trace the flat edges, and the outside scroll work onto a 2 inch wide piece of wood (a 2 inch wide piece of wood has been milled down to 1 1/2 inches).
What kind of corbels should I use for exterior molding?
They make the perfect accent for exterior dentil molding, columns, and archways, to name just a few applications. Understanding the different materials and designs used in their production will help you make the best choice for your home.
Where are the best places to put corbels?
However, you don’t have the flexibility in design and colors as you would with solid wood corbels. Some of the best applications for installing an exterior corbel or bracket are along gables ends and cornices. They are available in a wide range of sizes so no matter where you install them, you can be sure they’ll be noticed.
